Looking at the calendar before Thanksgiving, we realized that we have four long weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks. We are trying to plan as many fun things as we can, while still teaching everything that we need to! This week we are working on writing friendly letters. We have talked about the parts of a letter and looked at our message everyday. The children have picked up very quickly on these terms! Today we wrote a letter to our principal. I wanted them to think about 2 questions they want to ask and 2 things to tell her. My favorite question to ask was "How old are you?" This came from my birthday boy! I had to explain that it is not polite to ask an adult - especially a lady - how old she is! We all signed the letter we finished and took it up to the office. Unfortunately, the principal was in a meeting and we couldn't give it to her in person. She found me after school and is writing a letter back to them! The kiddos will see it in the morning!

Happy writing to Santa!
